Leading Manufacturer, Supplier & Retailer of and Dry Nigerian Ginger.
We are offering dry nigerian ginger. Ginger or ginger root is the rhizome of the plant zingiber officinale, consumed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice. It lends its name to its genus and family (zingiberaceae). Ginger cultivation began in south asia and has since spread to east africa and the caribbean. Dried ginger is nothing but fresh ginger which undergoes a drying process before being used. The fresh rhizomes are soaked in water overnight after which the outer peel is carefully removed using a knife or a peeler. They are washed again and then sun dried on mats or barbecues for around a week. During this period, they are turned periodically. The end result is a pale white dried ginger. Many a times, dried ginger is bleached with calcium carbonate to get a whitish covering on ginger. However, this is not required and can be avoided. ginger has high mineral content, being a good source of potassium, magnesium, copper, manganese and vitamin b6. They also contain certain compounds like gingerols, shogaols and zingerone, volatile oils that give it its characteristic odor and flavor. These oils have been known to increase gastrointestinal tract motility in laboratory animals and also have antibacterial, antipyretic, analgesic and sedative properties. Studies have also shown that gingerols can kill ovarian cancer cells. When ginger is dried or cooked, shogaols and zingerone are produced from the gingerols, which give it its pungent taste.
